Teaching Reception Capacity - Fun ways!

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by sparklegirl512, Jan 11, 2009.

  1. I am an NQt and teaching my Reception class capacity this week. Our vehicle for learning is water vehicles and am stuck for fun ways of teaching capacity.



    Also, do i only need to go as far as empty/full for non-standard units of measurement or do I need to explain further?



    Any help would be fab,

    Thanks in anticipation :)

    I'd have thought terms such as nearly full and almost empty/ more/less/etc would be almost impossible to avoid.
    Don't get stuck on water vehicles if they don't seem to be doing the trick.



     
  4. Thanks! How would you teach this concept? I am beginning with looking at bottles filled wih different amounts of water introducing concept of full/empty/half empty. not sure where to next move to?
